SEE: Contemporary Art

Kenya has an amazing art scene. I found this guide to contemporary art galleries from The Culture Trip, it features galleries both in Nairobi and other cities so you can use it to plan a whole art road trip.

The GoDown Art center is interesting in itself as a project. It is in an industrial area and used to be a warehouse but was converted into art studios and hosts exhibitions, shows, workshops and cultural nights. It was created together with architects from White in Stockholm. How cool is that as an example of international collaboration?

Let me know if you have some good art that you think should be highlighted on this blog or an example of a creative international collaboration in Nairobi.
